Cloudian HyperStore

We had a detailed technical analysis regarding Cloudian HyperStore before we selected it for our organisation. During the technical evaluation we considered about the performance of this product and we identified there is a fast data object transfer rate in this product. And we identified this product has strong security features to avoid many of data security threats. If anyone need to stored large data objects in a cloud environment with secure manner, Cloudian HyperStore is the ideal cloud solution to manage large data objects.

Red Hat Ceph Storage

It is absolutely, hands down the best storage solution for Open Stack. I would even argue it is the only solution if a company is operating at petabyte scale and need resiliency. The storage solution allows any organization to scale their environment using commodity hardware from top to bottom. It has a battle tested track record where it is even being used as the data storage back end for the Large Hadron Collider at Cern

Red Hat Ceph Storage

  • Ceph is very difficult to set up when we used it. One had to be very careful in how they assigned their crush maps and cache tiering to get it to work right otherwise performance would be impacted and data would not be distributed evenly. From the .96 version I ran, it really is intended to be used for massive data centers in the petabytes. Beyond that the command line arguments for ceph-deploy and ceph are very involved. I would strongly recommend this as a back end for Open Stack with a dedicated Linux savvy storage engineer. Red Hat also said they are working to turn Calamari in to a full featured front end to manage OSD nodes which should make this much easier to manage in the future.
  • It should not be run off of VMs themselves since it is not optimized for a VM Kernel. This advice is coming directly from Red Hat. Unfortunately this means that smaller use cases are out of the question since it literally requires 10 physical machines, each with their own OS to become individual OSD nodes.
  • I believe this is an issue with the OSDs and not the monitors which ran fine for us in a virtual machine environment.
  • We where looking at using this as a NFS work alike and in our experiments encountered a couple of issues. the MDS server struggled to mount the CephFS file system on more than a few systems without seizing up. This isn't a huge concern when it is used as a back end for Open Stack however when using this as shared storage for production data on a web cluster proved to be problematic to us. We also would have liked to have NFS access to the Ceph monitors so we could attach this to VMWare in order to store our VMDKs since VMWare does not support mounting CephFS. When we spoke with VMWare about 7 months ago they said NFS support is in the pipeline which will address all of these concerns.

Alternatives Considered

Cloudian HyperStore

We had a strong technical evaluation before we migrate to Cloudian HyperStore. We did some technical proofs to check the product performance, security features, cost by comparing with the mentioned alternative products and we identified most of the key factors are matched with Cloudian HyperStore Product. Therefore we decided to migrate data to this product. After we running few months in our production environment, we identified Cloudian HyperStore helped us to reduce our cloud data storage management cost.

Red Hat Ceph Storage

Red Hat Ceph storage offers an object store, which the other solutions do not. In addition, it is perfect for providing scalable block storage to virtualization products.

Return on Investment

Cloudian HyperStore

  • Data management monthly cost reduced after moving to Cloudian HyperStore.
  • Improved large data objects transfer rate after we migrated to Cloudian HyperStore.
  • Improved data security. This is one major reason we strongly considered to select Cloudian HyperStore.
  • Improved data availability by using Cloudian HyperStore product APIs

Red Hat Ceph Storage

  • CephFS was unable to handle several mounts at the same time. We will revisit NFS capabilities once available.
  • We gained quit a bit of experience with Ceph and we have a cluster on hand if our storage vendor doesn't pan out at any time in the future.
  • It had a negative impact in the time it took for us to test set up and test the cluster. Like I explained earlier, it was quite difficult to set up for experimentation. That said though, we have a very broad understanding of Ceph for our future products.
